9 Tasty Avocado Smoothie Recipes

Last updated: August 13, 2023

Nine tasty avocado smoothies with nutrient-rich ingredients, perfect as a meal replacement or as a post-workout refreshment drink.

Blending avocados in smoothies may not be for everyone, but I like the texture that it creates, especially when combined with other fruits and veggies.

That’s right, avocados bring so much more than just a touch of green to our plates. When whirled into the perfect smoothie, avocados transform our mornings, post-workouts, and snack times into moments of creamy delight.

Ready to sip on health and indulge in flavor? Let’s blend into the world of avocado smoothies, as I am sharing nine of my favorite recipes.

9 Delicious Avocado Smoothies

The following avocado smoothies preserve that characteristic avocado flavor, mixed up with other potent flavors and nutrients.

1. Kale, Spinach and Avocado Green Smoothie

Let’s kick off this list of avocado smoothies with perhaps the most nutritious one. Kale and spinach are two of my favorite smoothie veggies, mainly because of their strong nutritional benefits.

Combining those two greens and mixing them up with avocado and various fruits results in an incredibly tasty and rich smoothie. This kale, spinach and avocado green smoothie recipe has the perfect balance between vegetables and fruits, making it taste very refreshing and not too green.

I love drinking this in the morning as a powerful breakfast smoothie, or otherwise, a few hours before dinner to fight that almost unavoidable 3 pm afternoon energy crash.

 

Ingredients:

  • 50 grams (or 1 large cup) kale
  • 50 grams baby spinach
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 4 strawberries (optional)
  • 1 banana (fresh or frozen)
  • water + ice cubes

2. Mango Avocado Smoothie

I love mangoes! They are sweet and tasty and bring that tropical vibe, especially when paired with other fruits like bananas. Bring these fruits together, add some avocado, and you got yourself a creamy tropical delight.

I like this recipe because it also includes some suggestions for other things you can add to pack your smoothie with protein, fiber, and more nutrients.

This deliciously sweet smoothie is filled with tropical flavors that you can enjoy throughout the year, but even more so during the warmer summer months.

3. Chocolate Avocado Smoothie

A smoothie recipe with avocado and dark chocolate, can it get any better than that?

Dive into a velvety blend of rich cocoa, creamy avocado, and sweet banana, complemented by the gentle embrace of spinach and the nutty hint of almond milk. Drizzled with honey, it’s a sip of heaven in every glass.

Dark chocolate and avocado can work incredibly well together in one smoothie, especially in the morning as a breakfast substitute, setting you up for a productive and energetic day.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole avocado (pitted)
  • 1 large banana (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (or raw cacao)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves

  • 1 tsp honey (optional)
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes (optional)

Let’s continue this list of avocado smoothie recipes with the most straightforward one. This is a super simple recipe, and it contains the most basic ingredients. But don’t let that fool you!

This one works best for when I just want a refreshing and creamy smoothie with very little fuss and preparation. I would make this smoothie during busy mornings when I hardly have time to sit down and eat, and it will fill me up for a few hours.

5. Avocado Seed Green Smoothie

Yes, you read that correctly. In this particular avocado smoothie recipe, we are also going to include the seed. Yikes!

The hard and bulky seeds in avocados are actually quite nutritious, and one of the easiest and quickest ways to consume an avocado pit is by adding them to smoothies. But you do need a strong blender that is able to crush an avocado pit, such as a Vitamix.

This avocado seed smoothie recipe is not only nutritious, but also surprisingly tasty, with spinach leaves, mint leaves, strawberries, and banana.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 avocado seed
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1 large banana
  • 1 small cup fresh strawberries
  • 2 mint leaves
  • 1/2 lemon (or lime) (optional)
  • 1 large cup water
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes

6. Pineapple Avocado Green Smoothie

This pineapple and avocado green smoothie is delicious, nutritious, and energy-boosting from the first sip to the last.

The addition of avocado makes this smoothie creamy and velvety smooth, and while it may only have four ingredients (not counting water), it is perfectly balanced in sweetness.

The tangy-sweet pineapple chunks balance well with the creamy avocado. That combination of ingredients also masks the taste of spinach, and for those of us with finicky little eaters, that is a big deal!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 medium ripe avocado (peeled and pitted)
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • 1-2 tbsp honey or agave (or to taste)

Final Thoughts

Hopefully this list of tasty avocado smoothies has motivated you to start preparing more smoothies with avocado as a core ingredient.

For fast and easy smoothies, freeze some fruits in advance. Put one or two servings in a freezer bag to have them ready at any time. Avocados can be frozen, too. Dice them up and make sure to get as much air out of the bag before sealing it up.

You can either freeze different fruits separately or put one recipe’s worth of fruits together in one bag.
